Regional Director, Environment, Health & Safety
Air National Guard - Logistics Readiness Officer
About

I enlisted in the Air Force Reserves in 1988 as an Air Cargo Specialist and was charged with loading people and equipment on C5s. After two years I switched to the Air National Guard and held several enlisted positions. Started as a Personnel Specialist and finally as a Logistics Specialist. In 1998 I earned my commission and started my career as a Supply Officer. I did this for 2 years at which time I decided to take a few years off and switched to the Inactive Ready Reserves (IRR). 12 years passed in the IRR and finally I decided to finish my commitment to the Air Force and rejoined the MA ANG back in 2012 as a Logistics Readiness Officer, a position I still currently hold.
